When Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman made this observation many years ago, he was defining how he viewed the endless possibilities for human potential in sports.
He set the tone and direction for a young company created in 1972, called Nike, and today those same words inspire a new generation of Nike employees.
Our goal is to carry on his legacy of innovative thinking, whether to develop products that help athletes of every level of ability reach their potential, or to create business opportunities that set Nike apart from the competition and provide value for our shareholders.
It started with a handshake between two visionary Oregonians - Bowerman and his University of Oregon runner Phil Knight.
They and the people they hired evolved and grew the company that became Nike from a US-based footwear distributor to a global marketer of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment that is unrivaled in the world.
Nike does more than outfit the world’s best athletes.
We are a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries, and push out the edges of what can be.
We’re looking for people who can grow, think, dream and create. We thrive in a culture that embraces diversity and rewards imagination. We seek achievers, leaders and visionaries.
At Nike, it’s about bringing what you have to a challenging and constantly evolving game.
